A New York man and a Maine woman are facing charges over cocaine disguised as a cake that was seized from their vehicle, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said Wednesday.

緬因州緝毒局週三說,從一名紐約州男子和一名緬因州女子的車中查獲到偽裝成蛋糕的古柯鹼,兩人正因此面臨控罪。

Acting on a tip, police stopped the car on Interstate 295 in Gardiner on Tuesday, and a drug-sniffing dog found 4 pounds of cocaine worth $200,000 on the street, the MDEA said. Also seized was $1,900 in cash.

緬因州緝毒局說,警方根據線報展開行動,週二在加德納市295號州際公路攔下這輛車,嗅探犬找到了市價達20萬美元的4磅古柯鹼。還查獲1900美元現金。
